This restaurant with magnificent views perched on the 37th floor of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel is not the usual hustle and bustle dim sum joint. Here dim sum is feasted upon in style. I loved the cool, modern design of Sense. every single detail of their cosy dining room was exquisite.IMG_2725

IMG_2709On Sundays, Sense has a dim sum set menu and it is very wise to book ahead as they are always full. I booked a day before and only managed to snag some counter seats which weren’t all that bad. We had a fabulous view of the Tokyo Sky tree.

IMG_2735The set menu Sense prepares for Sunday brunch is quite extensive and includes an all you can dim sum section so allow at least 2,5 hours to finish the whole course.

The starter is a chinese style fresh vegetable salad.

IMG_2739There are a couple of choices for dessert. I decided on the fried rice ball covered with sesame seeds and my husband went for the mango pudding.

However, I did find the food to be quite delicious. It may not be authentic but it was very good, throw in the cosy restaurant and the lovely view, I say it’s definitely worth it.
